How Women Leaders Can Shape the Workforce of the Future
4 September 2019
17:15—18:45

Equality for women in the global economy is becoming one of the most important issues on the agenda for human capital, economic growth, and sustainable development. Around the world today, 740 million women (58% of the total number of employed women) hold insignificant and low-paying positions, which is impeding the achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. In this context, the contribution made by women to developing education and shaping the workforce of the future is particularly important. The growing involvement of women in these areas helps to enhance the competitiveness of economies, introduce innovations, and create new approaches to the development of the digital economy. What role do women play in introducing innovations in education? How does boosting women’s involvement in shaping workforce potential impact growth in modern economies? What skills do women need to develop in this changing world, and what new professional roles are women taking on in the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution?
